SPECIAL EXHIBTION - Art from the Archives 20th December 2018 to 12th May 2019


Join us this summer to admire local scenes and be inspired to create your own artworks…

For the first time, Whangarei Museum will be exhibiting painted works from their Archives. Various mediums will be displayed including watercolour and oil paintings, miniatures and jewellery. Several New Zealand artists are featured, with paintings of Northland scenes and people by the likes of Kitty Vane and George Woolley.

Notable pieces on display include an antique autograph book with painted scenes of England and Wales by Lady Elizabeth Seaton (nee Drake), descendent of Sir Francis Drake, and a beautiful mourning brooch originally belonging to Whangarei’s own Mary Mair, widow of Robert Mair.
